Brady Quinn really upset a lot of people about what he said about CJ Stroud.
The Fox Sports analyst and former NFL quarterback reported that top-five prospect CJ Stroud flaked on his commitment to attend the Manning Passing Academy ahead of this year’s draft.
Former Steelers safety Ryan Clark, who currently serves as an ESPN analyst, called out Quinn on Twitter, and accused the former first-round pick of trying to diminish Stroud’s character with the draft looming closer.
Clark took to Twitter and said that the Buckeyes quarterback never committed to attending the Manning camp and that Stroud instead chose to work with his teammates at Ohio State before his final season.

“This is an example of analyst like @Brady_Quinn telling stories of 0 value to diminish a man’s character while validating his own. Instead of dissecting film, or speaking to coaches an adult man stooped to gossip while analyzing. It’s an immature evaluation of football integrity,” Clark fired off in the beginning of the conversation.
“This is also an example of an analyst not doing his homework . There was no shot taken at his character & clearly, you don’t know me, my work ethic, or integrity. Maybe do the work and listen to the podcast before you start making claims,” Quinn responded.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Stroud was once the odds-on favorite to go No. 1, but is now looking at a potential dip out of the top three picks.
Many have him landing with the Colts at the 4th pick.
Stroud passed for 3,340 yards, 37 touchdowns, and six interceptions last season at Ohio State. He finished his college career with 7,775 passing yards, 81 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.
During his time with the Steelers, Clark played an integral part in the team’s successful run to Super Bowl XLIII in 2009, where they defeated the Arizona Cardinals.
Off the field, Clark has become a popular NFL analyst, offering his insights and opinions on various TV shows and podcasts. He has also been a vocal advocate for player safety, and as you see above, he protects incoming players who are trying to come into the league and prove themselves.
After retiring from the NFL following the 2014 season, Clark has continued to stay involved in the game as a commentator and analyst.
Overall, Ryan Clark is a well-respected figure in the NFL community, both for his play on the field and his contributions to the sport off the field.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
